[spoilers below, still]
Designers this week had to team up with
losers previously ejected designers to make an “avant garde” outfit inspired by one of the two team member’s zodiac sign.
Did anyone else notice that THERE WERE NO VIRGOS at all????? (yes, that’s my sign—you think I use spellcheck? Nah, just a Virgo) Could this be coincidence? I call ZODIAC DISCRIMINATION from the producers. Let’s get a class action going. Any other Virgos want in? I can’t hear you. Virgos are not really “class action” types, I guess.
Given the LACK OF VIRGOS, it was a struggle for me to watch this episode. All those Scorpios and their irrational temper tantrums. What Virgo can take it??
One thing made me very happy this time. Taking a page from Trump, they eliminated TWO designers this week. Yay. Quite VIRGO-ish of them, you might say.
The other thing that made me happy was seeing little Christian again, last season’s winner. Say what you will about him and his taste, he makes great tv. I mean, FIERCE tv. I wanted more of those prior season designers. Were you happy to see any past faves? Were they more talented than this season’s crowd?
As for this season’s designers, we said “adios” to Blayne and Terri. Blayne and Stella came up with….what? A Greek, leather strapped goddess being attacked by a giant python made of rainbow tissue paper? As I write this, I’m realizing that Kid would probably LOVE that outfit….
Might I add, however, that for all the crap I have written about Blayne, he was remarkably gracious upon his exit. Way to be, Blayne. Terri, on the other hand, seemed bitter. Hey, didn’t I say she should be bitter a few weeks ago? Well, it showed. And poor little Keith, still ouching from his ouster, got tested by the universe by being paired with Terri. Isn’t it amazing that alone a designer does fine, but add a difficult partnership and WHAM, crapola comes down the runway?! How does strife negate the original designer’s talent? Is talent so tenuous?
Kenley, who didn’t LISTEN TO TIM, barely missed an exit. What was that dress? Is she doing a Tim Burton movie? I kept seeing Helena Bonham’s face on top of that dress. Her partnership was hilarious, though. She just merrily stomped on Wesley, and he raised his eyebrows behind the scenes about her absurd outfit.
Leanne, IMO, should have scored a third win in a row, but I think they decided to spread the winnings around a little. Jerell‘s outfit was good, but I thought Leanne’s was better.
Who do you think should be next out? Personally, I’m less attached to all of them now that I know none are Virgos. Yeah, we’re very clique-ish, that way.
What about Tim? Maybe he’s a Virgo? He looks like a Virgo. I’m off to Google it….
